Chiefs Steelers Betting Tips – Chiefs Try To Salvage Their Season Against The Steelers
The Kansas City Chiefs have endured a hellish season through and through. They can remove part of the bitter taste in their mouths if they can spring an upset on Monday Night Football.

Why Kansas City Will Win
The betting websites in America are certainly going to give Pittsburgh the benefit of the doubt in this argument, but they're not going to ignore or walk away from an alarming truth about the Steelers. Plainly put, they're not as impressive as they used to be. Pittsburgh is muddling through in most of its games. It's hard to find eye-popping performances for this team in 2012, despite the fact that it has won two of the past seven Super Bowls and has established itself as one of the elite franchises in the sport.
Pittsburgh's offense just isn't humming. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has done enough to win games in recent weeks, but the Steelers do not have the same diversity of weapons they once owned. Roethlisberger himself is less prone to scrambling for yards, now that he has absorbed a number of concussions and has become a more physically limited player. Pittsburgh has needed its opponents to contribute timely mistakes in order to win.
If Kansas City, for all of its limitations and problems, can play a turnover-free game and win the field-position battle, it can play the Steelers on relatively even terms and then, with a big play here or there, can remain competitive well into the fourth quarter, hoping for one drive or one defensive play that can seal a victory on the road.
Why Pittsburgh Will Win
When you are playing online poker, make sure that you have the winning hand. Clearly, Pittsburgh does in this tussle. The Chiefs have become an absolute disaster. They're very likely the worst team in the NFL at this point. Their front office is in shambles and their head coach, Romeo Crennel, has plainly not kept track of how much his best running back, Jamaal Charles, touches the ball each week. Opening-day starting quarterback Matt Cassel has been a colossal disappointment, and when Crennel benched him in favor of backup quarterback Brady Quinn a few weeks ago, Quinn promptly got injured.
Quinn was not about to deliver results, mind you, but the fact that Quinn got injured prevented him from developing any rhythm as the team's new field general. Cassel has been thrown back into the fire, creating a total mess on both tactical and psychological levels. The Chiefs' other offensive players know that they're playing for a quarterback who is damaged goods, untrusted by his head coach. Kansas City plays with no cohesiveness at all on the offensive side of the ball. Pittsburgh's defense should be able to smother the Chiefs' offense on Monday night.
Who Will Win
The Steelers and Chiefs are in different leagues… not because Pittsburgh is so special, but because Kansas City is genuinely abysmal. The Steelers will roll.
